Ain't nothing but marking time

Dr. Monkey has died!
Welcome, Dr. Monkey! You are aligned with the critical thinkers (that's town, sometimes).
You are a PhD candidate, and your power is working forever with little sleep!
This means you can continue to post in the night phase without restriction (time to meme), but once per game, at a random EoD, your vote will jump to the player with the second highest total! You may be able to stay awake forever, but eventually, you'll make a mistake.
Good luck, Dr. Monkey![/quote[
Yes, I want to touch on this, too - if you want to design a game but aren't sure about running, or vice versa, there are solutions!
The idea is that we can fast-track a design that has been approved before and is known to be balanced, like one of the approved open or semi-open designs from Mafiascum, or something that's been ran before. Completely new designs would still need some degree of review.
If you're choosing any of the pre-approved Mini games (ONUW, C9++, etc.), it won't be run as a normal game and you're free to add to it any flavor you want.
I agree with this, would be nice to replace it.So i briefly brought this up on the ongoing Mansion game but this thread is the right place to do it. Has there been any consideration on changing the lynch terminology? We could at least semi officially adopt some other term, or terms, with less disgusting baggage. It would be a pretty easy thing to do that would help make the conversation less icky.
I'm new in the community and i don't want to come barging in here with any sort of demands or grandstanding ideas but i can only speak for my experience. After using the word repeatedly on the last few days, I'm just not comfortable with it anymore and am gonna avoid using it from now on. But i'd really like it if we all just dispensed with it altogether.
Would you mind explaining that a bit? I'm probably ignorant. After glancing at wikipedia, is this a US centered issue? As a european I seem to miss the historical context for understanding the graveness of the situation? Does lynching specifically refer to the murder of afro americans?
this sounds vaguely sexual to be honest, and your example choices are noted.
Not American but my understanding is that hate groups performed lynchings to terrorise the black population in the USWould you mind explaining that a bit? I'm probably ignorant.

I'm trying to understand here, dictionaries seem to describe lynching as the act of a mob killing someone without legal trial (as in what we do/pretend to do/play).
